Live arts. Up close. Culturemart is the annual festival of hybrid works in progress coming out of the HERE Artist Residency Program (HARP), where process becomes the focus. Beautifully produced, yet still in development, Culturemart provides a platform for current and often a few former Resident Artists to blur the boundaries between dance, theater, music, new media, puppetry and visual art, melding these forms to support their adventurous visions. This year's program will feature 12 workshop performances spanning genres as varied as surreal object-theater, cinematic music-theater, immersive historical theater and everything in-between.
Dozens of productions spotlighting the best artists on the world puppetry stage.
BAM's Next Wave Festival has permanently changed the artistic landscape, featuring breakout performances and landmark productions. Using a name that plays on the New Wave in French cinema, BAM president and executive producer Harvey Lichtenstein launched a series entitled "The Next Wave/New Masters" in November 1981 with four productions: three dance works, plus Philip Glass' new opera Satyagraha. A more ambitious program followed in 1982, including a two-evening performance work by Laurie Anderson entitled United States: Parts I-IV.
The success of these first two years helped propel a bolder and riskier program in the years to come—one that has defined BAM and an entire generation of artists. Current Executive Producer Joseph V. Melillo was the producing director of the Next Wave in its inception and continues to spearhead BAM's adventurous programming roster with emerging and established artists, including Steve Reich, Meredith Monk, Robert Wilson, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane, and Lev Dodin.
A man's nose disappears from his face, and turns up the next day gallivanting around St. Petersburg dressed as a general -- what a lot of nosesense!
